Objective 2: Use data to make better decisions about transportation assets


Gather and manage data that helps guide investment, avoid risk, and make informed decisions.

Strategic Initiatives

  • For each class of assets, define “state of good repair” and develop a living asset registry to better prioritize maintenance.

  • Integrate data collection and management of all PBOT assets, including transit facilities, so decisions are data-driven.

  • Measure the likelihood and consequence of asset failure—known as “asset criticality”—and prioritize reinvestment according to this measure

Indicators and Sample Measures

  1. Quality of Analysis 
    a. Percent of asset classes with high-confidence data 
    b. Percent of asset classes rated at a frequency in line with industry standards
